Interacting with the media, Bollywood actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha, who has been associated with BJP for about three decades, said that he will join Congress now, as tweeted by the ANI. On being asked ‘when will he join Congress party?’ he said, “Joining will happen soon, we will give you a positive news during Navaratri.”
Earlier chairman for the state Congress election campaign committee Akhilesh Prasad Singh told reporters that “Shatrughan Sinha will join Congress in New Delhi on March 28 at 11.30 am … He will be our candidate from Patna Sahib”.
Although being a two-term BJP Lok Sabha member from Patna Sahib, BJP dropped his name and chose to field Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad from the seat for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
Answering ‘if he will contest from Patna Sahib?’, Sinha replied, “Whatever might be the situation, the location will be same.”
